Holy Week Services
GOOD FRIDAY: 7:30
Our interactive service is titled, "The Journey of the Cross and The Way of Peace." We will carry a large cross to different stations around the church, reading scripture, and praying for people in our own lives, community and world whose lives reflect the characters portrayed in the scripture. Each participant will carry a small booklet with the prayers as we rotate speakers. Part of the service has been adapted from the beautiful Prayer of St. Francis.
HOLY SATURDAY: 10:00 a.m.
On Saturday morning we will decorate the church and cover a large cross with flowers. All are invited and encouraged to bring flowers and greens and decorate the cross. The more flowers you bring, the more beautiful the cross for Easter morning. This is an inter-generational activity!
EASTER: 10:00 a.m.
Our service will be filled with music, the choir and Eliot Philharmonic, a message of new life, flowers and balloons and celebration. It will be followed by an Easter Egg Hunt on the lawn for the children. What a great time to invite friends!
See our At-a-Glance Calendar for a full listing of upcoming events!
